Promising Jamaica-born defender has signed a four-year contract extension at Manchester United after making 14 first team appearances this season.

The new contract keeps 19-year-old Cameron Borthwick-Jackson at Old Trafford until at least June 2020 with an option to extend for a further year though details of his wages remain nebulous.

Borthwick-Jackson, a product of United’s famed academy, was handed a first-team debut by former Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal in the Barclays Premier League game against West Bromwich Albion in November and he has been a regular in the squad since then.

His stellar performances in the just concluded campaign earned the left-back United’s Under-U21 Player of the Year award at the club’s annual awards gala as voted for by the Red Devils fans globally.

“I have grown up at United and have enjoyed every minute of being here. Last season was an incredible experience to make my first team debut and a dream come true for myself and my family,” Borthwick-Jackson said.

“I feel it stands me in good stead for continuing my development as a Manchester United player. I will continue to work hard and take advice from the manager and his coaching team to improve with every training session.”
